Books for You

Help your Library grow its book collection - suggest a book for purchase!

Is there a particular book we don't have in stock that you feel would be a useful addition to the collection - not just for you, but for fellow students as well?  We can't guarantee we'll always get what you request but we will consider every title put through.

If you would like to request a book to be purchased by the Library fill out the form on the Books For You page and we'll take it from there!

Don't keep us guessing - let us know!


This guide introduces you to the key sources of Library information for Architectural technology, Building, Construction and Civil Engineering programmes.

Use the tabs above or the Quick Links to the left to help you to find print and electronic books, journals and other Library resources.

Let us know what you think about this guide and whether it is useful: your comments will help us to improve this service
